The Boston Red Sox, down 7-0 to the Tampa Bay
Devil Rays in the 7th inning, score 4 in the 7th, 3 in the 8th and 1 in the 9th to win the game 8-7 and keep their chances alive in the American League Championship Series – that’s just plumb crazy!
After the first run by the Sox, my buddy the Hollywood property master texted me “at least they scored” – he’s kinda bummed about the Dodgers not getting into the World Series, too. Soon thereafter, David “Big Papi” Ortiz hit a 3-run home run, and I texted back “right where we want them”. Semi-joking, but boy, when it got to the 8th inning and they had Wheeler (Tampa’s relief pitcher) rattled … geez, it really felt like they were going to get the job done tonight.
Thanks, Red Sox – that was fun tonight!
